April showers bring...
this month's CURRENTLY!!
I say it every time, but I look forward to & LOVE doing these every month. It's just so much fun! A big THANK YOU to Farley for always hosting this!
Listening... to the sound of those April showers. We have had so much rain in Georgia, and I am ready for some OUTSIDE recess, but I do love the rain. Especially when it's bedtime! I've always wanted a tin roof so I can just fall asleep to the sound of it. Plus, those April showers mean spring is FINALLY on its way :)
Loving... that we have only one more week 'til Spring Break. I really wish it was this week since Easter was today, and it only makes sense to me, but I am just happy it's almost here! There's something to be said about knowing we only have 7 weeks of school left after Spring Break...even if it DOES bring on a bit of a panic attack!
Thinking.... about the beach. Growing up in Alabama, most of my personal friends on Facebook are on spring break right now, or have already had it. I keep seeing all their beach pics, and I'm ready to go NOW! It's truly my favorite place on earth, and I'm in serious need of a few days with my butt in the sand and a good book... Heading there in May, but really think I could be ready in 10 minutes if opportunity knocked on my door. Then again, the beach means swimsuit shopping...UGH!
Wanting...something...EVERYthing in that new mint/tiffany blue color that's all over the ads these days. I'm in LOVE with it, for reals. I went shopping...err..hunting...this weekend for something that struck my fancy, but came home with nothing. Isn't that the worst?? I really want some mint blue peep toe shoes to wear to a wedding & they are no where to be found. Boo :(
Needing...these darn allergies to HIT THE ROAD!! I love spring..really, I do...but these white trees and all the pollen is about to kill me. I'm currently drowning, if you know what I mean, and no amount of Zyrtex or Sudafed seems to be helping the constant drip....drip....sneeze...drip...drip... cough.
Advice... Now I'm not a blogger with thousands of followers, so I'm not the expert on this kind of thing. But, if I were to give advice, it would be:
1 - just be you! Blogs are so much more fun to read when you can sense some personality in there. Be funny, talk about stuff outside of your teaching, and let your blog represent who you really are!
2 - Leave feedback/comments on things you like or love. Don't just download it and move on, leave the person some bloggy love to let them know you stopped by. Everyone loves comments!
3 - Last, but not least, I believe in helping out other bloggers. I have heard stories of some people not wanting to lend a helping hand & I just don't get it. We were all newbies at some point, and this is such a wonderful community to be a part of. Help someone out, network, send messages, and just be nice. Isn't that the right thing to do anyway??
Oh, and #4 - LINK UP! There are so many fun & cute linkys out there...like THIS one. Link up & make some new friends... and like I said earlier, visit others and say "hi". :)
Well.... that's about it for me. It's bedtime & 5:30 comes WAAAYYYY too early for this night owl. Thanks for stopping by & have a happy April !! Can you believe this school year is flying by so fast?! Wowzers!
